To celebrate, I decided to make a Breaking Bad Bundt. It had to be blue (of course) but I decided on a nice raspberry flavour, after a lengthy conversation with my friend Dave about ice pops and Slush Puppies. I used little blue sweets as a replacement for the crystal meth (I believe this is rather moreish and isn't great for the pegs...) and dyed everything in sight blue with gel food colours. I made my floating eyeball out of a jawbreaker, and added a layer of jam to make the cake moist and tasty.
I got all my decorations from my local sweet shop. The lady serving me sweetly asked 'is it for a little boy?', to which I cack-handedly explained that the sweets were supposed to look like crystal meth. I get the feeling she didn't wholly approve.
The cake itself was very simple, and can of course be made without so much blue!

- 225g butter
- 450g golden caster sugar
- 4 medium eggs
- 1 tsp lemon extract
- 350g plain flour
- 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 250ml raspberry yogurt
- 5 tbsp raspberry jam
- To make it blue: Food colouring, icing sugar and sweets if desired.
- Preheat the oven to gas 3/160 C
- Grease and flour a regular sized bundt tin - 2.4l, 10 cup, 10 inch.
- Cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy.
- Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
- Add the lemon extract.
- In a separate bowl, measure out the flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt.
- Pour the yogurt into a jug (add the food colouring at this stage if you're colouring the cake).
- Sift in a third of the flour mix followed by half the yogurt. Repeat this until everything is combined. Don't over mix.
- Give everything a quick mix on a low speed for about 10 seconds.
- Pour 3/4 of the mix into the prepared tin.
- Dollop the jam on top of the mix and spread around, avoiding the sides.
- Cover with the rest of the mix.
- Bake in the centre of the oven for about 1 hour 15 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. It should be shrinking from the sides of the tin slightly.
- Leave the cake to cool for 10 minutes, then remove from the tin.
- Serve either plain or with a dredging of icing sugar. Or with lots of blue if you wish.
